Name: Lee An Qi Class: 3H/7 Date: 2 June 2012 Urbanization is the process that leads to an increase in the number and proportion of people living in urban settlements such as cities or towns. It also refers to the increase in the size of land area occupied by urban settlements. To cope with urbanization within a drainage basin, urban development and deforestation are carried out, which affect flows to and within a river channel. Other factors like drainage density, climate, area of drainage...

Surface Runoff

limpahanpermukaan), interflow, and ground water flow (air dari punca bawah tanah). 1 Runoff results from rainfall occurrence in a hydrologic catchment. Rainfall-runoff relations are Interflow/subsurface and base flow/groundwater flow very important in hydrology. 2 Most work on the prediction of runoff requires past records. 3 The problem is that some streams are not gauged. Also, non-recording gauges only gives the volume of water and not intensities 4 There is the need to get records of stream...

Methods Of Estimation Of Flood Discharg

advanced techniques, both have their disadvantages. CN values have not been widely assessed for New Zealand and often reflect local hydrology poorly, and both the SCS and unit hydrograph discount the importance of changing pre-storm initial conditions (ie, antecedent soil moisture). 4.2.2 The Rational Method The Rational Method is a widely used technique in engineering hydrology, although it is known to produce results that have large uncertainty (see McKerchar and Macky, 2001). It can be used as a screening...
